About our Department
The Psychology Department is focused upon offering the unique Buckingham tutorial teaching model and two-year degree programme. We have intakes of 84 students per year onto our psychology programme and we aim to find a good fit between our applicants and the teaching we offer. We also have a thriving research community and full-time, research active, teaching staff.
We put great emphasis on individual attention to students, in terms of both academic and pastoral support. At Buckingham, you will certainly not get ‘lost in the crowd’, but instead benefit from the excellent student-to-staff-ratio and small group teaching on which the Department prides itself. Each tutorial has a maximum of 7 students and involves lively face-to-face discussion on contemporary psychological debates. This means our students develop many more transferrable skills in our tutorials than on a “traditional” degree programme.
There is a wide range of options for after you finish your degree. Many of our students stay at Buckingham for postgraduate studies. Others go on to work as Chartered Psychologists, in industry, or in education.
